He said: “I won’t say too much, I am doing something in June.
“I won’t say too much in case I’m not allowed to say what I’m doing but I am doing a bit of reality TV for the first time.
“Which I’m slightly apprehensive about doing.”
He also revealed how he definitely won’t be putting on his ice skates to take part in the next series of Dancing on Ice, or Strictly Come Dancing.
ITV Mikey North is the man behind Gary, and has played him since the character first appeared in 2008
Mikey said: “I can’t ice skate so there’s no way I’d be doing that and I can’t dance so I won’t be doing Strictly.”
However, he does want to follow in the footsteps of his Corrie co-star Jennie McApline and enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle.
He said: “I would fancy doing the Jungle maybe one day.
“The Jungle’s the one of all of them that I probably would do. I think I’d be alright, it’s heights and water are the thing.
